[Interview] Alejandro Brugués Talks ‘The Inheritance’ and Halloween

Death is coming for the billionaire patriarch of an estranged family in the new horror movie The Inheritance, arriving on digital this week, and we talked to the film’s director Alejandro Brugués recently about his genre inspirations, as well as dressing up as Michael Myers for Halloween, and more.

In the film, on the eve of his 75th birthday, billionaire Charles Abernathy invites his estranged children back home out of fear that tonight someone or something is going to kill him. He puts each of their inheritances on the line, to ensure they’ll help keep him alive.

The ensemble cast includes Bob Gunton, Peyton List (Hubie Halloween), Briana Middleton, Rachel Nichols, Austin Stowell, David Walton, Resse Alexander, and Chris Wood. The film is directed by Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead, Satanic Hispanics), and written by Chris LaMont and Joe Russo (Nightmare Cinema).

In a our video conversation last week, Alejandro talked about making the feature film, and of course we also touched on Halloween, as the director surprised us by showing off his own Michael Myers mask and revealing that has worn the full costume on plenty of Halloween nights.

The Inheritance will be released in select theaters and on VOD this Friday, July 12.
